On the way, we stopped by Sonic to pick up lunch for all of us. After about thirty minutes, A asked me to shake up her blue coconut slush. I reached back to grab it from her, to find this: [Go ahead, click it to enlarge. I dare ya. Almost as gross as this, right?]
This picture was taken after the slush became blue coconut "juice". I have no idea what the fuck A ingested, neither did the "manager" when I took it back on the way home. If you're a lawyer in Talla.hasse and you want to help me sue, hit me up. Ha.
Of course, after I saw the condition of the "slush", er, shit, I wasn't going to give it back to my baby girl. I held onto it until we got to the beach. (Fucking XM radio takes over our extra cup holder. Bastard.)
While I was looking for the $5 to give to the beach lady, my phone got curious about the shit in the slush, too. Yes folks, the unthinkable happened again. After we pulled away, I noticed my iPhone in the cup getting drunk.
We were two hours away from an AT&T* so I decided to enjoy our trip to the beach, regardless. Once we made it back to town, we hit up the AT&T store to buy a new iPhone. After all, they did drop the price to $199, right? Wrong. Apparently, I am three weeks shy of being allowed to "upgrade" to the price of $199. I can get it today, for $399, or wait three weeks and pay $199. Despite only having three fucking weeks until the "time is up", AT&T wouldn't budge.
Apparently the $300+ a month NYEBoy and I spend (okay, so NYEBoy pays, but still!) a month is not good enough for AT&T to allow us to "upgrade" at the "new" "lowered" rate without waiting three more weeks. Instead of paying them $399 or $199 for that matter, I am going to cancel my service with them for $175. I will gladly take the $300 and give it to Sprint, Verizon, or whatever fucking company wants to take our payment each month.
Sonic, you can kiss my ass for the poor excuse of a manager you had that kept repeating to himself "WTF is that?" No shit sherlock, WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU FEEDING MY NIECE? If you wouldn't have given her a slush full of shit, my phone would be fine right now.
AT&T, you can kiss my ass for not waiving a three week lapse because of a fucking accident. I hope the $200 means a lot to you. A lot more than the nearly $4,000 a year we spend using your service. Piss ass excuse for customer service.
*AT&T, you really should include have an application that shows you the nearest AT&T location. Not that I care any more.
Don't forget to go see what the rest of the class is sharing. Hopefully, they are having a better weekend than I am.
NYEBoy went back to the AT&T store, like a sucker, to pay $400 for the phone. He's more forgiving than I am. As he was being rung up, the guy told him, "Oh, it looks like it's going to actually be $599, instead of $399." He asked if the guy was joking, indeed he wasn't. NYEBoy arrived home furious. He called Apple, who told him they didn't even have a phone that was $599. The Apple person told him to try another AT&T store. He went to another store and after a little bit of discussion, they told him he was actually eligible for the $199 price. I am going to the other store tomorrow to have a discussion with the manager. I want them to know what they put us through, almost lost them a customer who pays nearly $4,000 a year.
